Windows Interesting little tidbit from the Reddit AMA session with Microsoft's Surface team. One Redditor wondered just how much disk space Windows RT takes up - in other words, if you buy the 32GB Surface RT tablet, how much space is left for your stuff? It turns out that while Windows 8 RT is considerably smaller than its Windows 7 x86 predecessor, it's still huge by mobile standards.

Will it handle cruft? No.

I am left wondering how Windows RT handles the buildup of cruft.

It'll handle it just like Windows always has... it won't!

Every version of desktop Windows grows over time, and it's up to the user to find and run tools to fix it (if you rely on "Desktop Cleanup" you're system will be monstrous after Windows updates.) I wouldn't expect anything different with Win 8.

Yes, exactly. And I've found the ultimate solution and switched to Slackware. There are all kinds of tools available around. It's only up to the users to figure out. However, it is arguably not-quite-feasible to the majority.
